"Throughout my career I have learned that color more than any other visual element has the power to change human perception efficiently and economically, for better design outcomes and sustainable practices. 

As an artist and designer, I share what I observe about nature and use it to inspire the creation of healthy, uplifting, living environments."

I have been working with Kim for 8 years. She picked all interior and exterior colors for my existing home, and is currently helping me with color selections for my new home. From the beginning of the construction process, Kim advised me on colors and materials. She clearly understands the impact that color plays in each unique environment. Not only are her fees reasonable, she has saved me thousands of dollars by discouraging me from bad choices! I would not make any color choices without Kim.
